ENMA consists of Jewish and non-Jewish civil-society organisations from various European countries. ENMA has developed a common methodology of low threshold, victim-oriented and scientifically standardised monitoring of antisemitism. ENMA aims to introduce its approach across Europe and therefore welcomes new member organisations to the network.

ENMA members include: Bundesverband RIAS e.V., Jewish Association Czulent, Israelitische Kultusgemeinde Wien, CDEC Foundation, Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic

Bundesverband RIAS e.V.

The Federal Association of Departments for Research and Information on Antisemitism (Bundesverband RIAS) is the umbrella organisation for the civil society reporting offices for antisemitic incidents in Germany. The RIAS reporting offices are the first point of contact for those affected by antisemitism in Germany. Their goal is to record antisemitic incidents nationwide and provide support to those affected by antisemitism.

Since its foundation in October 2018, the Bundesverband RIAS has built up a dense reporting network for antisemitic incidents in Germany. It pursues the goal of a uniform documentation of antisemitic incidents in Germany based on the IHRA working definition of antisemitism. Based on the categories and working methods of the Community Security Trust (CST), the Bundesverband RIAS has developed a database-based recording of antisemitic incidents, that allows for a nationwide comparability.  The Bundesverband RIAS initiates and supports the establishment of local reporting- and support structures for those affected by antisemitism. It provides the database as well as trains and qualifies the employees of the local reporting offices.

In addition to its work on local structures, the Bundesverband RIAS provides annual reports, analyses, and working papers on antisemitism in Germany, focusing on recent trends and developments. In addition to its research efforts, the Bundesverband RIAS combats antisemitism through educational materials and workshops.

The Bundesverband RIAS is part of the Competence Network on Antisemitism (Kompetenznetzwerk Antisemitismus) and works closely with the Central Council of Jews in Germany, the Competence Center for Education and Research critical of Antisemitism of the Central Welfare Office of Jews in Germany (ZWST), and other Jewish organisations as well as the German State Commissioners for Combating Antisemitism.

Those affected by antisemitism can report antisemitic incidents online (https://report-antisemitism.de/) or by telephone (+49 800 0 32 32 63). RIAS reporting offices also cooperate with other civil-society organisations that support those affected by antisemitism. Forc ompetent support and psycho-social, legal, anti-discrimination, victim, or process counselling, RIAS reporting offices are able to refer to a number of Jewish and non-Jewish co-operation partners.



CDEC Foundation

CDEC Foundation (Center for the Documentation of Contemporary Judaism – www.cdec.it) is an independent, nonprofit cultural institute based in Milan subjected to the supervision of the Union of Italian Jewish Communities (UCEI). It became a Foundation in 1986 and registered since 2018 in the register of Third Sector entities. CDEC Foundation is dedicated to the study and dissemination of the culture and history of Jews in Italy from the mid-19th century to the present day.

CDEC was founded in Venice on April 25, 1955, on the tenth Anniversary of the Liberation of Italy, on the initiative of a group of young Jewish members of the Jewish Youth Federation of Italy (FGEI). Resistance and persecution remained central themes of CDEC’s activities for a long time. In the 1960s and 1970s, CDEC became better known internationally thanks to the work of collecting evidentiary documents for the trials that were gradually instructed against the Nazi hierarchs.

The four pillars of the Foundation are: research, training, conservation, and monitoring. Researchers from different departments often collaborate in research projects that cross the four distinct pillars.  The foundation’s projects focus on Jewish history and presence and the Shoah, but they interface with Italian society and European society in general. The Observatory on Antisemitism was formally established in 1975 and its main functions include the management of the Antisemitism Hotline, conducting quantitative and qualitative research on the phenomenon in Italy, monitoring social media and training.

Victims and witnesses can report incidents through the Observatory on Antisemitism’s website (www.osservatorioantisemitismo.it), by email antisemitismo@cdec.it, by WhatsApp +39 349 404 8201    or by phone +39 02316338. If requested by the victim or witness we offer support on how to report incidents to authorities, such as OSCAD and UNAR, with the support of Union of the Jewish Communities (UCEI), and non-legal actions, such as reporting incidents to social media platforms, school principals, and so on.

Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic

The Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic (FJC) was established in 1991 and serves as an umbrella organization for Jewish Communities and other Jewish institutions in the country. There are currently nine official Jewish communities in Bohemia and Moravia with approximately 3,000 registered members. In addition, there are eleven various Jewish “secular” organizations which fall under the auspices of the Federation, e.g. Beit Praha, an open Jewish congregation of mostly foreigners residing in Prague, the Union of Jewish Youth, the Maccabi and Hakoach sports clubs, the Terezín Initiative, the association of Czech Shoah survivors, etc. In total, these institutions bring together approximately 2,000 other people, but it is estimated that there are an additional 10,000 to 15,000 unregistered Jews in the country.

The FJC represents the Jewish community before domestic authorities and institutions, including the state, and abroad. The FJC is a collective member of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) and the European Jewish Congress (EJC).

The activities of individual Jewish communities and the Federation itself include:

  • religious and cultural activities
  • educational activities aimed at the young generation and adults, not only for its own members but also for the general public
  • social care services
  • reconstruction and maintenance of important Jewish monuments, especially synagogues and cemeteries, throughout the Czech Republic.

The FJC is also the founder of the Sefer publishing house, which focuses on publishing religious literature, non-fiction (especially from the Shoah period) and works by prominent Czech and international Jewish authors.

According to its statutes, the FJC actively fights against all manifestations of antisemitism, racism, xenophobia, Nazism, fascism and any discrimination. The FJC regularly publishes annual reports on antisemitism in the Czech Republic and operates an online form for reporting antisemitic incidents. If necessary, the FJC stands ready to provide legal or other assistance to victims of anti-Jewish hatred.

The online form for reporting antisemitic incidents is available in Czech and English at www.nahlasincident.cz and can also be accessed on the websites of the FJC and many other Czech Jewish institutions.

Jewish Association Czulent

The Jewish Association Czulent stands as an independent, non-profit advocacy organisation operating on both national and international levels, with a keen focus on advocacy engagement. Recognized as a non-governmental organisation representing national minorities, the Association serves as a platform, uniting professionals within the Jewish community in Poland and beyond.

Operating within a framework of strategic advocacy, the Association is committed to advancing principles of tolerance and inclusivity across national, ethnic, and religious lines. Its primary objectives include the proactive mitigation of antisemitism and discrimination in all forms, including the intricate intersections of bias and prejudice. By employing a nuanced political approach, the Association endeavours to effect tangible change at both local and global levels, fostering environments of equity, understanding, and respect.

The Jewish Association Czulent was founded in 2005 initially as a student association dedicated to the promotion of Jewish culture, history, and traditions, with a primary objective of facilitating the revitalization of Jewish culture in Poland. Over time, in response to evolving interests and requirements of its members, the Association transitioned into a focal point for Jewish professionals. Its mission expanded to address the diverse needs of the Jewish community.

Czulent, engages in a multifaceted range of activities aimed at advancing various aspects of our mission. In addition to our pivotal role in monitoring and combatting antisemitism, we collaborate with both domestic and international institutions, operating on a global scale. Czulent holds membership in several coalitions and organisations, including Nasz Rzecznik (Our Commissioner for Human Rights) Coalition, the International Council of Jewish Women (ICJW), the CCOA-ISD Coalition to Counter Online Antisemitism, the Coalition of Equal Opportunities, ENCATE – European Network Countering Antisemitism Through Education, and the European Network Against Racism (ENAR). Through these partnerships, we work tirelessly to promote tolerance, equality, and the protection of human rights on a global scale.

The Association’s priority tasks include:

1. Advocacy and watchdog activities.

The Association works through political, social, and legal advocacy, creating and implementing innovative educational solutions. By building a coalition to promote tolerance and shaping attitudes of openness to national, ethnic, and religious differences, emphasising actions condemning antisemitism, racism, and discrimination. By cooperating with institutions, public administration, and dialogue bodies, the Association contributes to changes in the society’s attitudes and Polish law provisions regarding tolerance and racism. The Association cooperates with the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), the American Jewish Committee Central Europe, the National Democratic Institute, the Polish Commissioner for Human Rights, and the Union of Jewish Religious Communities in Poland.

2. Addressing Antisemitism

Czulent undertakes comprehensive initiatives aimed at combating antisemitism. We have developed manuals to assist educators in preventing and addressing antisemitism, as well as created exhibitions and online tools for broader awareness. Additionally, we have produced a series of reports, with the most recent focusing on Visegrad countries and their approaches to tackling antisemitism.

In Poland, we are partnering with cities to implement the IHRA definition of antisemitism, offering training for city guards and police officers. Our latest program centres on the reporting platform zglosantysemityzm.pl, which is accessible in Polish, English, and Ukrainian. This platform serves as a central hub for collecting and analyzing data on antisemitic incidents, hate crimes, and hate speech. We publish annual reports and share our findings with local authorities, law enforcement, and legal professionals, serving as an essential advocacy and educational resource.

Furthermore, we collaborate closely with human rights lawyers to strategically pursue legal action against perpetrators of antisemitic hate crimes. Our victim-oriented approach includes operating a dedicated support line where individuals affected by antisemitism can access expert legal and psychological assistance.

3. Strengthening the Jewish community

The Association aims to build alliances and coalitions and initiate the creation of legal instruments, programs, and strategies that enable and support Jewish institutions in developing the Jewish community. Furthermore, the Association works to build a strong sense of community and cooperation within Jewish organisations in Poland.

An antisemitic incident may be reported via the platform zglosantysemityzm.pl or an e-mail info@zglos-antysemityzm.pl (in Polish, English and Ukrainian) or by phone +48.12.400.00.08 (operating hours available on zglosantysemityzm.pl).
